Mu­si­cal sto­ries of nat­u­ral won­ders

Eastern Reporter - - Front Page -

RAIN­BOW But­ter­fly Re­becca Flana­gan will take chil­dren on a science-based sto­ry­telling ad­ven­ture with mu­sic, as part of the City of Bayswa­ter’s Na­tional Chil­dren’s Week events.

The City’s li­braries are host­ing free out­door rhymetime and sto­ry­time ses­sions, play­time and gi­ant games from Oc­to­ber 19 to 28.

Ms Flana­gan, who owns Mu­si­cal Ex­pe­ri­ences For Chil­dren, will run the Ad­ven­tures with Rain­bow But­ter­fly Show fea­tur­ing lit­tle gar­den crea­tures at Bayswa­ter Li­brary on Oc­to­ber 26, from 10.30am to 11.15am.

“I love to nur­ture chil­dren’s imag­i­na­tions and cu­rios­ity through my play­ful mu­si­cal sto­ry­telling,” she said.

“My own four-year-old daugh­ter loves dis­cov­er­ing all the won­ders of the nat­u­ral world and con­stantly asks me to tell her sto­ries.”

She said the week was a time to cel­e­brate chil­dren and high­light ad­vo­cacy for their right to en­joy a happy child­hood.

Mayor Dan Bull en­cour­aged kids to “get back to ba­sics and be them­selves”.
